My son Tucker is six weeks old and weighs about 13 pounds. He is a big boy. I am having trouble deciding what I need to do. He has been eating every 3-4 hours. Yesterday I pumped at about 5:00Pm 4oz. I tried to feed him around8:00 and he latched on for about 10 minutes then he stops and starts crying. He latched on again and not even a minute later he started crying again. This went on for about thirty minutes. I chaged breast and kept trying to get him to latch on but he wasn't having it. Finally the milk I had pumped I fed him with a bottle. He sucked it down. Afterwards (4oz.) he still seemed unsatisfied so I tried the breast again. He latched on and started again. So, I am frustrated, this went on till about 1:30AM. Then this morning he latched on and ate for about 15 minute and was fine. I need help. Do I feed him some formula? My milk doesn't seem to be enough. I don't think it is refilling good enough to satisfy my little piggy.
